    Wild guess: the sequence of his finish positions in Olympic finals.

      Could it be 41,213 meters into the Olympic marathon? Not sure what happened at that point in the marathon because I believe Mimoun took the lead around the halfway point in Melbourne (1956).

            Someone here said my trivias are too easy.

                I donโ€™t know for sure but want to take a stab before I go to sleep. I wonโ€™t give full answer as I did some research on his life..
                4-1-2-1-3 are the number of individual gold and silver medals he has won in different โ€œworldโ€ venues with the tickler being the number 1?????

                  4 = he won four Olympic medals.
                  12 = he finished 12th in another Olympic race. (10k in Melbourne.)
                  13 = he passed away in 2013.

                    Sorry, but I don't see any correct answer about what the (41213)Mimoun is, yet...
                    To help again (the last time) this is something that exists physically and moves much faster than Usain Bolt did.

                        I guess it's an asteroid.

                          There is also 1740 Paavo Nurmi, for just one example.

                            I had the chance to talk with Alain Mimoun 15 years ago.
                            I forgot to ask him what it felt to know that someone chose his name for an asteroid, then.
                            He always had an epic way to describe his experience of war ( Monte Cassino, WW2, where he was injured) and of his many more pacific battles on the track arenas, for example.
                            He was one of the most popular athletes in France through the 50s'.

                              I was a spectator at the 2003 Paris World Champs. During one session in the stadium they started showing some old clips of the sport. My French isn't great, but after a short while, I realised that they were doing some kind of countdown of French athletes over the years including Roger Bambuck, Guy Drut, Michel Jazy and Marie-Jose Perec. They announced the number 1 as Alain Mimoun, and after showing his clips, he was then introduced to the crowd. He then proceeded to run a lap of the track at a decent speed for a 70 something whilst waving enthusiastically.
